Disney cuts ties with Netflix—Here’s why

Disney is ending its exclusive deal with Netflix in favor of launching its own streaming service.

Its deal with Netflix runs through 2019, which is also the year it’ll launch its own streaming service where Disney movies and content from its entities like Disney Channel will be available. Upon the launch of the Disney streaming service, the main titles that will be available will be Toy Story 4 and the sequel to Frozen.

AT&T sweetens Unlimited Choice data plan with DirectTV Now add-on

AT&T announced its Unlimited Choice data plan can now be coupled with DirecTV Now for only $70.

Unlimited Choice is AT&T’s low-tier unlimited data that costs $60 per month. The plan is a cheap unlimited data plan but has the catch-22 detail of capping out data speeds at 3mpbs. DirectTV Now’s “Live a Little” package retails for $35, but customers who couple the Unlimited Choice and DirecTV Now subscription will receive a $25 credit bringing down the total price to $70.

Now it’s about throwing in more incentives beyond unlimited data, and a free subscription to HBO, which alone runs $15, is a pretty sweet perk.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer 3—Everything you need to know

Cloaked figure, Rey (Daisy Ridley) in a broken ship, scavenging for parts.

“Who are you?” a voice asks. It’s a voice we haven’t heard before, and I’m thinking there’s a good choice this is the voice of Maz Kanata (Lupita N’yongo). She sounds friendly, welcoming, but since we know absolutely nothing about her, it’s hard to say if she’ll be a good character or not. Chances are her intentions will be ambiguous from the start, but I’m guessing she’ll wind up being someone we love.
